Lynne's On-Line Purchase Revealed

I'm so glad you've returned to see what I absolutely could not live with out while visiting Nell Hill's.
I'm joining Marty from astrollthrulife today for Table Top Tuesday. Marty thank you for hosting this fun filled day.

I recently redecorated the top of the entertainment center. Moving things around isn't that unusual around here. In this case I had to find the perfect place for my latest purchase. Do you recall me saying I called Nell Hill's and placed an order? Well... I ordered this beautiful platter and these darling bookends. I first spotted them when she made her post on facebook. I tried my best to mimic what she had displayed. After searching the house for some old books, and mother's old wooden box I think I accomplished just that. :-))
The platter is heavy and large in size, a little over 20" x 16". Thankfully, I had the perfect plate holder for it.

The attention to detail is incredible.

I first spotted these darling bookends while visiting the store. As I said in my earlier post, the crowd was heavy and the lines were long. I practiced self control until I saw it posted on
facebook. I knew immediately I would cave and have to have them. After ordering them I looked around our home and discovered something very interesting. I, have a fetish for bookends. How and when did that happen? Well, my friends that is a post for another day. lol
The cobalt blue base the dogs set on is incredible, a perfect match for the platter.
When I called and talked to Janet she told me these were on back order, due to the rush of sales from the posting on facebook. I assured her there was no hurry and she could ship it all together. About an hour or less later Janet called me back, she had searched the 16,000 foot store to locate a set of these darling bookends for me, that my friends is an employee that goes above and beyond. That was on a Wednesday, I received my purchases on Saturday.
Many of you are aware I can't and don't order many things, but this is one of those purchases I don't regret doing. They make a statement on top of the entertainment center and put a smile on my face each and everytime I look at them. lol
Thank you for endulging me. As a reminder, if you ever do decide to order anything from Nell Hill's you won't be sorry. The quality of their merchandise matches the quality of the pictures Mary Carol posts on facebook. In today's world, I find that a rarity. Until next time..
hugs ~lynne~

I don't know what I would do if I couldn't order from Nell Hill's...well, I'd just have to do what I used to do...make pilgrimages to Atchison and KC!

I love your purchases!

Oh my goodness! That storefront is huge. I am a MCG fan but I have never seen a pic of her store. This must be the one in Kansas City. Beautiful platter. Beautiful vignette. Love it all. Sherry

Have a great week! :-)

Oh Lynn, your platter and bookends are just fabulous. I love them both and I can certainly see why you had to have them. Your entire vignette is just stunning. I love all the candles, the iron piece, and all of it together. Exquisite. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

Lynn they are both beautiful. So happy you treated yourself! They make a beautiful statement!


GORGEOUS!!!! Don't blame you for ordering them and YES Mary C. does have terrific staff in her store at Briar Cliff (that's the one I've been to the most since we live fairly close)...I'm sure her Atchinson staff is just at great.

So glad you purchased items that make you happy every time you look at them....that's what it's all about!! dana

Hi Lynne,
Thanks for coming by my blog to check in. I hope all is going well with you and Mr. P. I am always amazed at how you always do all that you do. And some days I think my life is hard, and then I think of what you must face. I would love to visit her store. I'm glad you have had the chance. Love what you bought. I'm wondering how I missed that post on Facebook. Maybe it came up while I was out of town. I think I need to pay better attention to her posts. That plate is gorgeous. I think a few new things always help cheer us up, don't they? Hope you're having a good summer & will have a great July 4th.

I love Nell Hills and there is always something I wish I bought when I get home! The platter and bookends are perfect and Mary Carol has such a knack for putting interestng items together in ways that most people don't think of!

nannykim said...

I love this tablescape! The bookends are darling. The platter makes me think of Heidi because of the goats on top!a Really nice space you have created. Just read about you on your about you thingy--sounds like you are very busy!

Hi Lynne! Oh, honey, Nell Hills has nothing on you - you may have gotten a little inspiration for that shop - but you've got the decorating gift! You do! I love that platter and all your settings.
be a sweetie,
